I am an atmospheric scientist who studies the role of clouds in reflecting solar radiation incident on Earth (a cooling effect) and in reducing the infrared radiation emitted by Earth (a heating effect). I am particularly interested in how cloud properties change as the planet warms due to greenhouse gases, and whether clouds act as positive feedbacks that amplify warming, or negative feedbacks that diminish warming. To investigate these processes, I use theory, observations, and global climate models.
